CCFL 40" LCD purchase help - Used okay

307 Views 3 Replies 2 Participants Last post by  wtfer
I am fairly sensitive to PWM flicker and don't like LED TV's that use them. I would like to purchase a 40" (or less) CCFL backlit LCD TV. It does not have to be super thin.

I realize I missed the boat a couple years back as I've been enjoying my RPTV, but now I need one for a second living room.

Any recommendations on a good middle-to-upper unit in any reliable brand from a few years back? I'd also be interested in anything new that uses CCFL, or maybe an LED TV if it doesn't use PWM.

Not all LED's use PWM for backlighting


Personally, I only heard of this problem on PC monitors, not on HDTVs.
OK, I wasn't sure. It is NOT a problem on any TV?
Honestly, I have never seen or heard from anyone who mentioned flicker on their LED TV sets.

The only times I seen it mentioned were in PC LED monitor reviews.
